  wwall: Fischer coasted in the end. He scored 7.5 out of 8 in the first 8 rounds.
Oct-07-17  ughaibu: Playing games with an average length of 63 moves can't seriously be characterised as "coasting", regardless of the result.

  Karne: Impressive tournament from Fischer, even though his opposition weren't always of the stellar sort.

  keypusher: Copying from Troller's post:

<They really did their best. In advance I had informed them that I was very strict on my demands for the lighting and ineed they procured some special lamps from Zagreb.

I was hard on the Yugoslavian players, 7-0!

In the last three rounds I didn't play very well; I do not know why. I don't think I was relaxing even though I was already certain to win the tournament. I wanted to win it by a large margin.

The last two players were very weak.

Ivkov does not play anywhere near as well as he used to. He played a completely horrible opening against me.>

I assume by <last two players> Fischer meant Jovanovic and Matov, who finished a combined +1-23=2. Fischer's last two opponents were Gheorghiu and Bertok.
